This, from the New Majority blog, really cracked me up:
Republicans sticking by popular democratically established marriage policies, lightly challenging religious conservatives, and promoting mainstream conservative policies that the gay community would support over the objections of Congressional Democrats?
Not to get carried away, but this is how realignments happen.
The policy he’s referring to (something to do with HSAs) may be perfectly sensible and set Burkean bells a-ringing, but Republicans using pro-gay policies to affect realignment?
I may have to start using the phrase “Not to get carried away, but this is how realignments happen.”
